So there we have it. Outside of any possible stragglers, we have completed our recruiting odyssey for the 2012 year. With it comes fresh hope and promise that these young men will continue to lead the program in the right direction under the watchful, Dove bar-loving eyes of Coach Marrone and staff. So how did we do as per the scouting services?
Well, not too bad as things go in my opinion.
We landed a a true 4 star recruit (Tight End Ron Thompson and previous recruit Ashton Broyld was upgraded after a great year at Milford) and adding a whole host of other 3 star players. The total count is:
3 Star: 11
2 Star: 9
And the best way to see how we are trending is always to look at how we did last year. Of course, if we got 5-7 (or worse, God Forbid, we may not be able to expect we do as well next year on the recruiting trail.
Last year we had 24 recruits come in (we didnt get Tyree Smallwood, and A. Broyld is in this year's class)
3 Star: 10
2 Star: 14
Over all, Id say things are looking up. This is the recruiting class I think we wanted to get us back on track.
Here is to a great year on the gridiron for the Orange!
